If you were a DU student and left before completing your degree and you have been away from DU for more than 5 years, you will need to apply as a transfer student, even if you have not taken additional courses elsewhere. If you are within the 5-year period, you will work with Academic Advising as a Reentry Student. In addition, please email us at [email protected] to give permission to view your student record.
